As we near the end of 2018 and people are already starting to daydream at their desks about the days off, the Christmas pudding, the over-eating and catching up with family, we decided to take a look back at our blogs from throughout the year and pick out some of our favourites.
This year, the blockchain has been a hot topic and we really went deep on the subject, so here are a few of our favourite blockchain blogs;
- We looked at how the blockchain can help those in business.
- We looked past the jargon and the technical speak to what the blockchain really means.
- How the blockchain can be useful in the real world.
To mark International Women’s Day, we took a look at the impact women have been making on the world of technology and how important it is to get more women into the IT sector by fostering a love of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects from a young age.
Parents, teachers and those working in education often wonder about overexposing children to technology, as they are often at vulnerable stages of development, so we took a look at whether or not there should be an age consideration when looking at regular technology use.
Almost every business person has a review or comment section and if not, we are all open to being criticised or praised online by keyboard warriors, so we took at look at how best to respond to online reviews.
All of our inboxes have been flooded with emails on a weekly basis since the middle of the year offering you the chance to opt out of email circulars and this is all because of GDPR, which many are still getting to grips with.
During the heatwave of the summer, we looked at the impact of exposing your smartphone, tablet or other personal devices to extremes of heat.
We also published a cool little series on mining, you can check out part one, part two, part three and the final part here.
In an age where personal information is almost its own currency, we looked at the true cost of a ‘free’ app.
Dora the Blockchain Explorer was introduced and you can read all about it here.
We looked at the blockchain world and what companies or innovations you should be keeping an eye on for 2019.
